Academic training

The Haute Ecole de Gestion de Genève (HEG-Genève) and the Institut Supérieur de Formation Bancaire (ISFB) have pooled their expertise to offer a cluster of skills in the field of continuing banking education. 

The financial center of Western Switzerland needs to be able to count on the best talent, as its reputation is built primarily on the quality of the services it offers. Its success depends to a large extent on the level of knowledge and expertise. To meet this challenge, ongoing training is a decisive factor. Through this partnership, these two key players in the field of training are providing the French-speaking financial center with an absolutely innovative and consolidated offering: that of supporting the development of a banking career as a whole. This competence center, unique in French-speaking Switzerland, is supported by the Fondation Genève Place Financière, and demonstrates once again the relevance of public-private partnerships.
